4 things to watch at NY Giants OTAs starting on Monday
2. Will there be any updates on Giants RB Saquon Barkley?
It goes without saying, but one of the biggest storylines surrounding the Giants this offseason has been the contract situation with Saquon Barkley. Entering Monday, No. 26 is not expected to be at OTAs due to no long-term deal being agreed upon. Saquon also was not on hand for the start of the offseason program.
Neither was Dexter Lawrence, but Schoen and Sexy Dexy were able to come to terms on four-year extension worth $90 million, with $60 million in guaranteed money. Lawrence is one of the best defensive tackles in the game and now he's being paid for it. Barkley wants to be paid like one of the top RBs in the NFL.
We don't blame him for that at all. However, it was reported not long ago that the Giants offered Barkley an extension worth around $14 million per season with incentives. He said no thanks to that. The hope is that something can get finalized as soon as possible. Not having Barkley with the squad right now definitely has a lot of people a bit worried.
